Forum: GratefulDead Subject: GD Forum Professions

I'm sitting here, Sunday Night 8:23 Central Time (listening to 3-15-90 - which is pretty Damn good for quality's sake).

I'm making a teaching schedule for tomorrow after having been off all last week on a Mexican Cruise. Anyway I'm charting out the last three weeks of the quarter before the Christmas Break and I think I've seen reference to others on the Forum who are teachers. I personally teach computer networking at a career college in Jackson, Mississippi to mostly people who weren't successful in any other endeavors and this is kind of their last resort. The tuition is 32,000 for two years but most of it falls under Title IV funding which is bascially Financial Aid loans and Pell Grants.

I was just wondering what the professions are of fellow Forumites.

I would love to get as many responses as possible even if it is just to say what you do just to see where we all come from in the common brother/sister(dancinbears)hood.

An interesting thread, just got back from a 4 day "work trip". I quit school before I finished in 1970, started selling jewelry on the streets and then developped that into wood work, turning crafts, and have been doing that since that time, with my wife, who is painting, selling on markets and fairs, and I just got back from a trip to a craft fair in Munich/Germany and am starting now to sell on a christmas market for 4 weeks, then travel to India again!, to get inspiration on inner and outer levels, soul and work. We also have adopted 2 indian children in 86 and 89, grown up now (See my name, too!) Sorry for maybe being too personal here, just in case anyone's interested.



Dr. Flashback, your website is interesting, I was never really interested in astrology, but got my first reading (vedic astrology) from a friend in CA (I'm german) just recently, very interesting, so I will read some more on your site, but as I said, just got back, it's late at night here and it's going to be busy - I'll try to be able to look at the forum from time to time.

Bye for now, I enjoy all your input here a lot, and it's becoming more and more intesting!

Hey Ganges - Very interested. Have you seen my website? If not, let me know. I'll send the address by email.

Do you have a web-site where I can see your work? I rent cars to several importers who travel to Germany to purchase art-glass or antiques for sale here in the USA. I'd be interested to know what you are producing and where I can send clients to meet you during Christmas Markets.

I'll send a note via email.

I'm a lawyer. I used to do plaintiff's employment litigation but found that I both didn't like the clients and also find that the discrimination laws in this country lead people to believe that they simply can't get fired simply because their minorities or disabled. etc. (which is not the case). I began to get the feeling that the people i met were trying to use the civil courts to make some "easy" money. Now I do tax litigation for corporations. The clients are (obviously) much more sophisticated and willing to help with their cases, plus I'm now billed out by the hour rather than on the contingency, so there's no risk involved in taking cases.
Please be nice about lawyers everyone! (I think I've heard all the good jokes)

Spent all my working life in book publishing. These days I work from home, which is nice as I can choose the soundtrack to my day and bounce around in my chair if I feel like it. Most of my income (such as it is, the rewards do not come from riches) comes from writing books for kids (mostly science and nature) and the odd bit of editing.

Sorry, a little more than you asked for, but given my history of drifting from "career" to "career", i figured it best to put it in perspective, as i may just be doing something else tomorrow. However, very cool question. And might i add that you, sir, have one excellent and likely very rewarding teaching job.

Some of you who helped me pick songs for my school’s winter concert know I am a first grade teacher at an int'l school in Bangkok, Thailand – Please come visit. It is the best job in the world and it got a hell of a lot better this Aug. Please let me share a sweet story.

We got a new director this year, I only knew that he was from Jersey (like my old man) and he worked in schools all over the world. On Friday of the first week of school I stuck my head in his office to say, “Have a nice weekend.” Before I could get the words out, I hear “Eyes of the World” playing from his computer speakers. I said, “No Way!!!! You’re a Dead Head!!!!” He looked around with that drop dead look on his face and said, “How did you know that, what gave it away?” I said, “The music.” He said, “Really, you can hear that?” I said, “Shit, I can tell you what year it’s from.” He said, “What year?” I said, “90.” He then stood up, shook my hand and busted out a bunch of ticket stubs and pics, telling me that he’s been to over a 100 shows. And that was it, since then we trade music (Thanks Jody C and AshesRising) and talk everyday about the good ol Grateful Dead. I love my job and the site below will tell you the other reason why:

http://simplysatsang.podomatic.com/

This site has been a savior to me over the past 14 months, I am Thankful and Grateful to all of you on here – regulars, extra regulars, lurkers, weirdoes, hippies, flag wavers and show goers with stoked minds taking toke after toke of the stuff from the riverside and the brushes that burns from the mountain’s fire on the mountains of the cool moon.

Alot of time dealing with public assitance programs (Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans Administration, AidsDrugAssistanceProgram (ADAP), Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and many more...you'd be surprised at the number of assistance programs out there that your tax dollars are funding...beats the hell out of funding a 5 year study into the emotional benefits of making red postage stamps for a criminally insane mongoose) and how to get people qualified. Basically, I spend a lot of time making sure that the drug companies are absolutely the last option for a patient to get medication. One may look at is as I'm only working for "The Man", helping a billion dollar entity save a mesely million or two a year, but I like to think of it as trying to get people on a full benefit health program, not just one free drug. Well, at least it helps me sleep better at night.

I'm a nursing student at a community college in New Mexico. Our tuition is $45 a semester plus books and lab costs (approx. $400). Its a 4 term associates degree that qualifies for the state and national nusing boards to get a(n) RN. Coupled with UNM for a fast-track BSN, it turns out to be a four year program for BS. There is, however, a two-year wait to get into the program!

Temporarily retired rock keyboard player, former and still part-time teacher. These days, mostly psychologist and counseling astrologer (www.thecosmicwheel.net)

It's interesting that although many of you have gotten so called "straight" jobs, you've still managed to remain the lovable Dead freaks you always were, and keep your spirit alive.

I think robthewordsmith has ther most fun job - writing kids books all day! Way to go Rob!

I wish I could get paid to get baked and write Dead show reviews, but so far no luck!!
cheers,
Dr. Flashback

As a Scorpio born the day before JFK was shot, I have to say your site actually nails some things about me (and I take all that stuff with a big grain of salt - "who you jivin’ with that cosmic debris?”)

And I'd gladly make a donation to a fund to support your concert review career path.

Interesting bluedevil, I too was born the day before JFK died (Aldus Huxley and CS Lewis too died 11/22/63).

Happy belated 43rd!!

I knew about Huxley but not CS Lewis. Thanks for the heads up.

And happy belated 43rd back at you.

Deadmax...what a cool thread question!

I am currently a Teacher's Aid, working with 1st thru 5th grades, but I had a job interview a little over a week ago, to completely change my career to a Sales Merchandiser for Advantage Sales & Marketing. Scarey making a huge change like this, but no $$$ with the schools, because the budget here doesn't get passed. They've had massive lay-offs, so I'm going before they tell me to go.
